A Sketchbook of Birds

by C. F. Tunnicliffe, introduction by Ian Niall
Victor Gollancz, 1st edition 1979

A Sketchbook of Birds | C. F. Tunnicliffe | Gollancz, 1st edition 1979 | Full Leather Binding

Full leather binding with blind stamp, gilt, and inlay design to covers; blind rules and corner inlays to inside – very atractive. No name or identifying stamp/mark but obviously by a competent binder.

Hardback – full leather. Pages not numbered, with colour illustrations. 9.75 x 10.5 inches approx. (241mm x 266mm).

Showing some age related wear consistent with long-term storage/shelved in a cold, dank environment. Covers a little grubby and marked; pages spotted to edges; some heavy offsetting or foxing to edges/margins of preliminaries and last few pages.

Nonetheless, remains an attractive display piece – a common book but unusual to find in such a nice binding.
